Are tanning bed patrons getting baked from inside out, and could silicone implants actually explode at a high altitude? Learn these answers and more in tests that separate the real from the really out there! This fascinating collection of 12 episodes from seasons 2 and 3, available for the first time in one four-DVD box set, includes a never-before-seen bonus feature: "MythBusters: Revealed" -- a behind-the-scenes look that reveals all the gaffes, goofs and experiments gone awry that make up a typical episode of MythBusters.

The episodes look very good, but sometimes I got the impression that the material wasn't filmed with widescreen viewing in mind, the framing can be on the claustrophobic side. (I.e., zoomed in a bit too far.) The earlier episodes have the myths one after the other, and you can select which one you want to watch. This is great. Unfortunately, in the later episodes we get the more familiar interweaving of the myths so you only get to select the beginning of the myth you want to watch but when the program switches to another myth you have to fast forward manually, there are no additional chapter stops.
This DVD set is very bare-bones. Only one behind-the-scenes feature, no commentaries, just full-length episodes (I think there may be some extra footage thrown in here and there; there are a couple small experiments that I don't remember seeing from the TV version). Plus, the episodes they chose for the set seem kind of arbitrary, just random ones from seasons 2 and 3. However, the new low price is MUCH better than the $60 or so you used to have to pay at the Discovery Channel website. I recommend this set to anyone who has ever been curious about their world. You will not be disappointed.
My dilemma of Christmas shopping was solved and if there are any problems when he receives it will update this review.
Most highly recommended.
Consider - the lovely quiet Jamie Hyneman and the eclectically loud and funny Adam Savage, THE MYTHBUSTERS plus (their beautiful and wonderful staff of Mythbusters: Kari Byron, Jessi Combs, Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci, Robert Lee, Nikos Andronikos and so forth...)
I saw one of their TV Show Seasons and I've purchased all of their TV Show Seasons available for sale, plus all of the 10 Collections and All of their Specials.
Yes, entertaining, worthwhile and something that never gets old, great explosions, curious informational tid-bits everybody should have whether it is a James Bond special effects or some other show, etc... Something for everybody! Buy it before they're gone, hurry up! I love this show!
